We also have professor Donald Berry with this MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.
He says that might be a bit of an over reaction so we have both sides of that job -- -- now start to it with you because you're saying.
-- we should tell people about the risks.
Not too much to -- to put a warning label on a cell -- really.
Well absolutely I would say most people don't know that there is a risk I mean let's face it.
Who reads WH OB -- the common people down the street don't.
What is happening right now is that the body of evidence is growing.
I want to point to something is that everybody who buys a Blackberry gets a little book like this.
In the warnings are in the book right they aren't calling you.
Back to keep this device away from you to keep it away from the -- a pregnant woman to keep up the way from the lower abdomen and our view.

The high arc panel said possibly carcinogenic.
Which means that they don't know.
Is a glass half empty or half full I think that there is if there is any risk.
It's minimal group from either glasses mostly empty and the evidence is pointing here's my question would no additional risk of having.
Using a cell -- and I'll ask you professor -- the question first before a desk job mr.
-- the question is that.
Why not just be better safe than sorry on this to the extent that.
Hey maybe there is no risk but people smoking cigarettes I'm sure back in the fifties and sixties not a thought while this is again -- this is going to be a problem for me where is now as you say we don't really know so why not.
At least be better safe than sorry would you be why would you be against.
Additional warnings for people.
So I'm having trouble here would be your phone.
It is our address the question didn't we hear you all arrived to -- why would you be against having a warning it would be better to be safe than sorry.
